Whose Headline Focuses On The Important Issues? You Decide!

The following headlines from some of the major news media outlets gives an indication of what they consider the "HARD NEWS" of the day. These major headlines took place on Saturday, January 19, 2013. They give a real tell as to what some of these so-called news agencies think their viewer and readership want to know about the world surrounding them. What do you think?

ABC NEWS: "(Lance) Armstrong Tearful Over Telling Kids Truth"

Finally I add this one for pure fun and try to scan at least once per week just to tweak my OMG brainwave: Before It's News: "Bank Of America, No Guns Or Ammo Purchases With Credit Or Debit Cards,You Have To Hear This! Video"

This is just a smattering of the U.S. and various world news agencies that I read daily. From the looks of what they each consider "hard news" worthy of their top headline spot it becomes pretty obvious which should be given greater attention in a world where time is becoming the most important commodity available.

If you are a news junkie like myself, which of those listed above capture your attention as worthy of your daily perusal?
